"Bush To Undecided Voters: Choose Kerry
by Scott Ott
(2004-09-04) -- President George Bush today said he has a message for undecided voters, the most coveted constituency for both Republicans and Democrats: 'On November 2, vote for John Kerry. If you're undecided, he's your man."
"Contrary to conventional wisdom, I'm not trying to sway those who disagree with me or hate me," said Mr. Bush. "'Cause I don't want to spend the next four years beholden to a bunch of people who can't make up their minds quickly when given a clear choice. I'll have plenty of votes if I just inspire the people who agree with me to go vote for me."
Mr. Bush also said he doesn't want undecided voters slowing down the lines at the polling places.
"You'll be standing there scratching your ear over which chad to punch, while my supporters will be stuck behind you, eager to vote and get back to business," he said. "If you're undecided, just vote for Kerry and high-tail it out of there. Then when I win, you can tell all your friends you were disenfranchised again."
MOOOHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! (evil grin)JIm "Hey RC, that's a pretty good mockup of the Congressional Budget Office website!" B.
I have mixed emotions about that. It is hard for me to imagine how we've come to a point where citizens care so little that they forfeit the right and forego a certain responsibility to participate.I have no idea who I'm going to vote for. I'm not even registered yet and don't know if I will since neither candidate appeals to me.
:eek:From his memoirs, "A World Transformed," written five years ago, George Bush, Sr. wrote the following to explain why he didn't go after Saddam Hussein at the end of the Gulf War.
"Trying to eliminate Saddam...would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible.... We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq....There was no viable "exit strategy" we could see, violating another of our principles. Furthermore, we had been consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-Cold War world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nations' mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the
invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land."
